It's Complicated is a story about love the second time around. It's sweet, funny, sad and, well, just complicated. Jane, played by Meryl Streep, and Jake, played by Alec Baldwin, are not young love-struck teenagers anymore. They also have a lot of history with one another. Jake and Jane were once married and have three grown children together, but they have been divorced for a decade now. Their marriage was ended by Jake's affair to a much younger woman. Jane has remained single, but Jake is married to Agness, the subject of his affair during his marriage to Jane. Thankfully the pair have been able to remain friendly with one another for their children's sakes, and they decide to share a meal together after the graduation ceremony of their son from college. They end up unexpectedly falling into each other's arms and then into the same bed with one another, and an illicit affair begins between the two. Jane has very complicated emotions about their affair, while Jake is happy and entirely unaffected. Agness is sending Jake to fertility treatments, and all the while Jake is sabotaging this by taking something to reduce his sperm count. He collapses during a secret meeting at a hotel with Jane, and a doctor must be called in. Their daughter's fiancee spots his fiancee's parents and the doctor there but keeps quiet about it since none of the children know. Jane is still confused and starts seeing an architect that she is using for her home. Jane is becoming more involved with Adam but is still involving herself with Jake. Agness finds out about the affair, and Jake and Agness separate. Adam eventually finds out as well, and this almost ends their budding romantic relationship. The kids find out and are very unhappy. In the end Jane ends things amicably with Jake and pursues greater happiness and security with Adam.
